Our Mission

Formally established in 1993, and granted status as an international non-profit organization in 1995, The Organization of Fish and Wildlife Information Managers (OFWIM) is comprised of professionals representing state and federal agencies, local governments, academia, and private firms that share the mission of promoting the management and conservation of natural resources by facilitating technology and information exchange among managers of fish and wildlife information.

We aim to bridge the gap between natural resource and technical disciplines through the promotion of interdisciplinary partnering, collaboration, sharing of ideas, and best management practices in order to effectively apply technology to the information and data needs of natural resource management.
